After the introduction of the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP last year, the Air Penny legacy writes a new story for 2012 in the form of the Air Flight One re-release and the Air Penny V – Penny Hardaway’s fifth official signature sneaker. However, the Zoom Rookie continues to be a recurring figment this year, with several new releases, the ‘Galaxy’ customs, and most recently, the actual Galaxy version that Penny casually wore around. A new detailed look at the tonal Royal Blue ‘Memphis Blues’ PE is upon us today, and while a release isn’t confirmed, the fact that these are popping up yet again could hint at one as these were previously known to be a 1-of-1. Would you be open to a release of the Memphis Blues or even the tonal-red Memphis Express? Check out the detailed images below and let us know what you think. Photos: marqueesole

1-of-1 no more: Chris Crawford, star guard of the Memphis Tigers, was spotted during last night’s contest against Rice University wearing the Nike Zoom Rookie LWP ‘Memphis Blues’, a PE colorway made exclusively for Penny Hardaway for the Nike Las Vegas ‘Penny Pack’ event.

Not much from the game has been released, except for the details regarding the bench-clearing altercation, but a clutch heads-up from ShermHJr gives us a nice shot of Crawford wearing them in-game. Would you cop of the Memphis Blues colorway released? Let us know in the comments section below.
